I am a big fan of online dating. It works! It may take time, it may be discouraging at times, but it works. I want everyone to get over the negativity. It’s a great way to meet people.
We women might meet some chumps, and for men, I know, them B’s be crazy, but have all the people you’ve met really been that bad?
I’ve been discouraged many times. I meet someone, we don’t click, I never see him again. Or, we hit it off (somewhat), we go along for a while and it fizzles out. I’ve been blown off, “ghosted,” felt rejected and disappointed. But, it’s cool. Hindsight is 20/20. I’m glad the ones I thought I wanted to work out never did.
Are these guys really jerks, as we women tend to classify the gender of male? No, they’re not. Sure, I did meet some creepers, but for the most part all the men I’ve been have been good guys. They just were just better off being good guys for other women.
I recently met a man. I really like him. A lot. And, we click. We joke, we laugh and we are the same page as far as what we want out of life. We have a ways to go to see how things work out, but I’ll tell you what, I never ever would have met him if it weren’t for online dating.
Do I really care that I met him on the internet? Heck no. Because, if we make it all the way, if we build a life together and love one another and care about one another does it really matter that we didn’t meet in some magical fairy tale sort of way? Hell’s no. In fact, I thank my lucky stars I had the internet because, I’ll say it again, I never would have met him any other way. I’ll be one lucky woman if I get to have him in my life.
If it ends up not working out then that’s ok, too. He’s not a raging a-hole. If it doesn’t work out it will be because we aren’t a right fit. And, I’ll say this again too, I’d rather be alone than with the wrong person. Or, in this case, dating people from the internet instead of being with the wrong person.
Online dating is pretty main stream now. But, for many there is a very strong stigma attached. We gotta get over it. I’d rather know I’m online trying and hoping to meet the right person for me rather than not getting online and knowing that I definitely won’t meet people at home channel surfing cable.
